    How do I disable form edits for previously submitted entries?

    Asked by storagesquad on August 14, 2014 at 10:37 AM

    I set a deadline for customers to edit their forms that they have already submitted.  That deadline has passed and I now want to disable form edits which will require them to send us an email with any changes they want to have made.  How do I go about doing this?  

    Each customer currently has their own edit link using the shortcode {edit link} that was sent to them when they originally submitted a form.

    Unfortunately there is no option to disable form edits that comes from email. This edit link is per submission and works on that particular submission only. Once the user has that link, he can always go back to the submission and edit it.

    To prevent any further edits on the new submissions, the link needs to be removed from the auto responder or thank you page where the link is placed.

    If you no longer receive submissions for that particular from, you may consider disabling the form.

    Please get back to us if you need further assistance. We are happy to assist you.
